To be a Legend, you have to have something special inside you… something bold. Something fierce. Something monstrous.
You’ve seen the leaks. The Monsters Within Event has now been officially announced for October 12th. Read on for more info:
Starting October 12th and running to November 2nd, join the Monsters Within Event. Fight to conquer the Encore Arenas map, the place where Seer made his name as a man to be reckoned with. Special event-limited cosmetic sets highlight the scary side of some of our most fearsome Legends, including Revenant, Bloodhound, Caustic, and Seer.
NEW ARENAS MAP: ENCORE
Encore is located on Seer’s home planet, Boreas, and is one of the main arenas where he has been seen fighting. Seer’s most ardent fans would often cluster to watch him duel there. This map is open and offers strong environmental awareness. Good teamwork and strategy are key if you want to succeed in this arena.
The layout offers combat over two high-ground power positions. On one side we have a VIP Lounge. The lounge platform provides direct combat. Flank options in the interior sections bring good clutch opportunities and strategic ways to dominate the fights.
Across the VIP Lounge is the Performance Stage. Establishing control there depends heavily on support fire from your teammates. The flanks on top of the seat ramps are wide and exposed. The middle of Encore is devoid of high ground positions and separates the stage and the lounge platform.
The last week of this event features the return of fan-favorite Shadow Royale. Take part in a darker version of the Apex Games, overseen by Revenant with a horrifying twist. All slain Legends respawn in a Shadow-Form to exact revenge and help their living squadmates. Shadow lives are infinite, and your squad’s not eliminated until the last living Legend falls.
MONSTERS WITHIN PACKS
New to this event are special limited edition Monsters Within Packs. For 400 Apex Coins, players can get an Event Thematic Pack that’s guaranteed to have a non-dupe event-limited item. We’ll also be offering some classic skins from previous Halloween events on the Apex Store, like Wraith’s “Mistress of Evil” and Crypto’s “Deadly Byte” skins.
- Monsters Within Packs are available for a limited time during the Monsters Within Event, but the items will always be available in the standard Apex Pack pool of items
- Monsters Within Packs however, guarantee you one non-duplicate Monsters Within Thematic Event item
- The new thematic event will introduce 40 new items around the Monsters Within theme
